Jessie Early's Experimental "Wild Honey"

Jessie Early, a Nashville native and singer-songwriter took a different production route than most of her counterparts on her debut EP, Wild Honey. Two years into the project and unsatisfied with the way the songs were turning out, she began collaborating with producer Jeremy Larson to take the tracks in a different direction. What emerged then, was a unique blend of acoustic and ballad heavy singer-songwriter characteristics and 80s style electronic percussion and synth production. Her tender vocals compliment the expansive sonic environment of the instrumentation. “Living On Your Love” is a perfect example of this unique trait. The structure of the song along with the electronic drum fills and bass-heavy frequency proves reminiscent of Phil Collins or Peter Gabriel. With a debut EP as bold and experimental as this, it’s easy to be excited for what’s to come next from Early.

New Track: "Renovations" - Harmony Woods

Philly singer-songwriter Harmony Woods, a.k.a. Sofia Verbilla, creates a touching imagery of a love that might not be meant to last in her latest single, "Renovations," which premiered ealier today over at Stereogum. The lines - "I tried to be build a home in you, but the foundation was overlooked. The floorboards are shaking in the room we loved once. Is this the end for us? Is this the end for us?" - hit like a ton of bricks before the hopeful, upbeat realization that letting go might be best. You can find the lovely ditty on her forthcoming LP Nothing Special, due out May 5 via Honest Face Records. (Photo by Ashley Gellman)





New Music Video: "Plastic Impulse" - Tremellow

Tremellow, a.k.a. Keith Abrams (of Pine Barons), delves into the delightfully strange in the new music video for “Plastic Impulse”. The song, featured on Doom Paste, a split cohabitated with Haggert Mctaggert, ventures into a waking freshness before cascading in a deep thumping body. Loosening, psych-pop exploits are punctuated by a combination of booming percussion and guitar spikes. The video creeps into one’s awareness, piecing together a mysteriously intriguing sequence of images.
